The United States is paving the way for the deportation of 300,000 immigrants from Central America and Haiti after the end of the special situation that protected them from deportation, the Washington Post reported.
"Secretary of State Rex Tilerson told Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Secretary Alan Duke that the justifications for the temporary protection status program no longer exist," the newspaper said in a news item, quoting informed sources.
"The program was established in 1990 to protect foreign nationals from being deported to their countries of origin because they live in an unstable environment such as natural disasters or armed conflicts and the program protects more than 300,000 people living in the United States," she said.
The development came several days before the Homeland Security Department announced its plans for 57,000 Hondurans and 2,500 Nicaragua, whose protection under the program expires in early January. Ending / 25 z
